The Villages at Brookside is a townhome community in Bourne that is built around The Brookside Club golf course. The village is private, thanks to its gated access, and features 241 homes in total.
There are two ways to access Brookside: County Road to the west and Waterhouse Road to the east. Both of these entrances put you on Brookside Road, which is the main artery running through most of the community.
Perhaps the main draw of living in Brookside, besides the golf course, is that it's an easy commute to both Providence and Boston. Route 28, which passes near the community, heads right over the Bourne Bridge. From there, residents can reach Boston or Providence in about an hour, making it easy to work in the city and live on Cape Cod.
Brookside provides an idyllic Cape Cod way of life near the Cape Cod Canal, without being too far from some of New England's largest cities. This location makes the community an excellent choice for anyone who wants to live on the Cape year-round without giving up their careers.
The neighborhoods of Brookside
Since Brookside is so small, there is only one neighborhood, but you can expect a different experience based on the section that you choose.
The main section of Brookside sits along Brookside Road. This section runs from east to west, and also features Carnoustie Road, Sea Knoll Court, Laurel Hill Court, Berrywood Court, Hollyhock Knoll Court, and Prestwick Road, just to name a few. The Brookside Road area is home to the community's clubhouse, which features an outdoor swimming pool and an ample green space, so it's where most of the activity takes place.
Reaching the other section of Brookside involves turning onto Turnberry Road from Brookside Road and heading south. This area is significantly smaller, and you'll have to be aware that the golf course runs right through it. The Brookside Club is also in this part of this segment, so you'll be within easy walking distance of Brookside's only dining option.
The history of Brookside
Until 1986, Brookside was mostly forests, marshland, and a pond, although there are some residences on Country Road, just west of the village, that date back to the 1600s.
In 1986, The Brookside Club golf course, a Michael Hurdzan design, opened to the public, and it has become one of the Cape's best golf destinations since that time. The course refined by John Sanford in 1996, creating its current layout.
It wasn't until 2003 that townhomes started appearing around the course. Today, Brookside provides one of the most sought-after townhome community experience not only on Cape Cod but all of Massachusetts. The village is close to the businesses of Route 28, the recreational opportunities of the Cape Cod Canal, and the relaxation of Monument Beach, giving residents the best of everything the Cape has to offer.
